Just because Columbia House won't stop "accidentally" sending Neneh Cherry cassettes to your old college dorm, don't let that prevent you from trying ybuy, a Netflix-esque "of-the-month" subscription club now in public beta that lets you (for 25 bucks, 12 times a year) play with one new piece of hand-curated swag for 30 days, before either sending it back free of charge or putting that $25 towards the full price of your sassy female robot maid. And to clear up any confusion about whether that was actually a reference to Rosie from the Jetsons and other issues, here are a few answers to your inevitable questions.
It was Rosie wasn't it?
Yes. Yes it was.
So what kind of products are we talking about? Nice products like Sega CD, or really nice products like Sega Dreamcast?
Though unfortunately (temporarily?) all out of sweet Sega products from the '90s, yb's extensive Sky Mall-like catalog of gadgets/electronics/appliances does feature other surefire winners ranging from Bose Headphones and iPad 2s, to panini presses, soda fountains, iRobot Roombas, and even a Sous Vide Water Oven.
That fake Jamaican psychic told me the price of stamps is supposed to go up next year. Is shipping included?
Yes, mon. They don't charge any bumbleclottin' shipping, and everything is sent via UPS -- you lose yet again, Postmaster General.
I often spend entire six-week periods just wallowing in self pity and writing vaguely sexual autobiographical poetry. So basically what I'm asking is -- do I have to try something every month?
Don't be silly, even yb understands that life and the pursuit of sexy poetry often come first. If you decide to take a break, your monthly fee simply gets deposited into a metaphorical bank that can be used to buy other products down the road -- like, for example, a cassette-to-CD burner for a Neneh Cherry compilation, once the new dude in room 432 at Shelton Hall finally sends them over.
